    NAGORNO-KARABAKH CONFLICT IS ALSO ISSUE OF VALUES - ARMENIAN AMBASSADOR

    VILNIUS. - The Nagorno-Karabakh issue is not only a territorial
    conflict, as it is often attempted to be presented, but an issue
    of values, individual freedom of, historical justice and right of
    people's to self-determination, Armenian Ambassador to Lithuania Ara
    Ayvazyan said in an interview with DELFI agency.

    "All these values are the basis of the current European Union,"
    the Ambassador said adding one of the advantages of Armenia is the
    integration into the European family, as European and universal values
    are of much importance to Armenians.

    However, the other party to the conflict rejected these values and
    Armenia was forced to enter war. The ceasefire has been declared for
    18 year. The peculiarity is that the dividing line is not secured
    by the peacekeeping troops. The international community granted the
    OSCE Minsk Group (France, Russia and the United States) a mandate to
    run talks to resolve the conflict.

    The Ambassador also mentioned that the Lithuanian FM Audronius
    A┼żubalis last year brought forward an initiative calling to withdraw
    the snipers from the contact line. Generally, the Lithuanian FM
    attempts actively to realize the initiative and to install the
    mechanisms of investigation into the incidents on the line of the
    contact. However, these efforts failed not because of the Armenian
    side.

    Asked whether there is any danger to increase tension between
    Yerevan and Baku due to the CSTO exercises scheduled for September,
    the Ambassador said that the maneuvers are not targeted against the
    a third state.
